School Reviews

This is a wonderful school which cares about the character as much as it does about the academic education of the student. It is great to have a common link among teachers, other parents and administration of raising our kids with the main focus being on God's word and His principles. The programs are staffed with caring teachers. Students have had higher average ACT scores (ask for their supporting literature) and have won the CBH Academic Festival repeatedly (5 or 6 times?) against area public schools. Students are taught to strive for excellence in all areas and it is evident!
